The project intention was to create a well function house but also a space to enjoy and appreciate the outside view. The sensation of an open space connected to the balcony and the pool is established by a wide window. There are no high elements which also contributes to a fluid indoor-outdoor perception.

The interior design follows neutral colors and uses natural materials. Concrete creates a contrast between the double height ceiling fireplace and wood, which appears in several elements as the kitchen ceiling and the dining table. Marble was another material choice to this project. Marble grey Armani was chosen to create a horizontal element to the fireplace and also to overlay the staircase steps. In the kitchen, there is Calacatta marble used as panels.

The restroom is a space beyond. The skinner stone covers all the walls, while a grey marble appears as a monolithic element, the sink.
